Rebecca Black, who found fame as a youngen with viral song Friday in 2011, has come out as queer.

The 22-year-old, who has held onto a career in music despite her rather unfortunately introduction to celebrity, spoke about her sexuality this week and revealed she’d recently gone through a breakup with a woman.

While appearing on podcast Dating Straight, Rebecca told hosts Jack Dodge and Amy Ordman of the split and insisted she previously made a conscious decision not to ‘come out’.

She continued: ‘People started asking and I stopped not responding. I’m still in the process, it feels like.’

Asked how she identifies now, Rebecca said she’s comfortable with the label queer.

‘It’s like the f**king quarantine, every day is different,’ she replied. ‘It’s something that over the past few years I’ve obviously been having a lot of conversations with myself about.

‘To me, the word “queer” feels really nice. I have dated a lot of different types of people, and I just don’t really know what the future holds. Some days, I feel a little more on the “gay” side than others.’

Still, while she’s happy to speak about her sexuality, she’s not about to capitalise on the attention by jumping back into dating any time soon.

‘I don’t really want to date right now, but even if I did, I have no choice,’ she said. ‘Unless I want to get on Raya and Skype date them? No.’

Ah yes the tricky pickle of dating while in lockdown. Fun times.

The star had recently said she saw herself on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, after she was asked in a YouTube video in January whether she was a member of the community.

While not specifying what she was comfortable labelling herself as, she said: ‘I definitely see sexuality as being on a spectrum.

‘You can definitely be on one end of the spectrum or the other, you can be very gay or very straight, it is super cool.

‘But of course, with there being a spectrum, there is this huge middle ground where everybody else falls in.’
